Liveblog: Sony unveils Xperia Z1 aka Honami
We expect a short and concise event, focused on the Xperia Z1, the company’s new flagship. Sony has already unveiled that it’d feature a 20-megapixel camera that aims to bring a small revolution to smartphone photography, and that it’d be a water-resistant device with a design similar to the Xperia Z.
Ever since Kaz Hirai took over the role of Sony President and chief executive on April 1, 2012, the Japanese company has been undergoing a renaissance with renewed focus on mobile. Now, we’re about to see the ripest fruits of its efforts. Follow us below!
Sony’s IFA 2013 press conference will start at the following times:

If Sony's stuff is priced ok it may lure me away from a N5.
I don't expect that but do hope they buck their own trend some an appeal to more people that way.
Otherwise its a Fabergé egg phone to me.

Not sure if this is more boring or the black screen when the stream was broken.

For me, it wasn't "disappointment", just, underwhelming.

you can see from the audience. nobody was awed. they were just like introducing stuff. unlike nokia's production introduction with actual demonstrations.
well, i'm disappointed. i've always been a sony fan. that presentation wasn't good.
